You’ve just received an invitation in the mail.. Dress Code: Black Tie. You start to feel a little anxious, what does this dress code actually mean and how can you ensure that you stand out on the night (for all the right reasons)?!
Read on below for your top 5 tips, Ladies and Gents, to ensure you’re looking and feeling mighty fine for your next big occasion..
INVEST IN QUALITY: A black tux is timeless, it will never date. The same goes for your shirt. Our suggestion, invest in quality like Dom Bagnato’s Peak Lapel Tuxedo and Tuxedo Shirt, because 5 – 10 years down the track, it will still be just as sharp as when you first purchased it.
STICK TO TRADITION, BUT ADD FLARE WITH ACCESSORIES: The Black Tie dress code is there for a reason, so don’t sway too far from the tradition. We recommend adding your own individual flare through accessories. A velvet, silk or oversized Bow Tie, a white silk Pocket Square, statement Cuff Links and a classic Timepiece are additions that will set you apart from the pack. We suggest Dom Bagnato as your one stop shop to get your accessories sorted!
THE SHINER, THE BETTER WHEN IT COMES TO SHOES: There is no explanation needed when it comes to this point. As the saying goes, you can tell a lot about a person by his shoes.
MANNERS PLEASE: I’m sure your mum always taught you to be a gentleman.. well tonight’s the night boys to ensure you do her proud (not that you shouldn’t always act in this manner!).
YOUR DRINK OF CHOICE: You’ve gone to the effort of dressing up, so why not make sure you drink is from the top shelf. We suggest a strong whisky – an Old-Fashioned is our personal fave!
